Splash, the Middle Eastern retailer has created a 13 image conceptual calendar called “2012 – A New Beginning”, with the thirteenth www.coachfactoryoutleth.org
image signalling the start of the new world on December 22, the date after the end of the world, according to the Mayan calendar.The numbered 500-edition calendar is set in space amidst a world of B-Movie glamor, with images of glossy hypercolor in which models pose in dramatic, fantastic dresses and killer heels created bespoke for the pictures. A palette of metallic brights is worked out on a spectrum of draped coach bags outlet
and pleated dresses and jumpsuits, teamed with skyscraping heels and volumized locks.
Each image was shot in a specially-made set created by artists and artisans flown in to construct the landscape entirely from recycled materials. Props include a metal horse, 50s style robot and steel teddy bear.Tejal Patni is the photographer and creative behind the vision of a new world for the calendar, which is the retailer’s second. Patni said: “I combined my thoughts and the vision of Splash for 2012 to explore […] what has been predicted to be a dramatic turn of events in 2012. The concept brings alive a world of ultramodern glamour in its 13 images and is set against the backdrop of bare metal and warm colors.”
The calendar will be gifted to Middle louis vuitton outlet online
Eastern VIPs including media, opinion makers and partners. With a parallel plan to make the calendar accessible it will be available in a desktop version, across all Splash Stores at a minimum purchase of AED 100.As it unveiled the upbeat calendar, Splash pledged a positive year. CEO Raza Beig said: “The concept ties in the business plans for the year. Splash will soon announce the re-branding of all in-house labels to one brand name i.e. SPLASH, ensuring every customer’s fashion need is addressed within the label. This new beginning will also extend to newer store formats and the launch of Splash in a number of new countries.”The print-clash thing is only going to get bigger and bolder (have you seen the Summer rails yet?) but here’s an early and more wintry example of how texture is adding depth to the print mixes. It’s a street side adaptation on this cutesy auburn and elfin bowl-cutted shopper.

feel those slopes-ready leggings expect.Selfridges is set to unveil the redesign of its Women’s Designer Galleries this February, revealing high tech changing rooms, a digital art gallery and a round-up of its re-edited high end collections.
The marble refurb has been inspired coach outlet online
by the store’s neo-classical architecture but it is a sci-fi overhaul of the changing rooms that captivates the imagination. Cloistered away from the shopfloor, they feature a three-screen central mirror with in-built cameras that will allow shoppers to capture images and videos of themselves to replay and email. The idea is that customers can view three different outfits at once, making it easier for them to compare color and fit before they buy. The changing rooms are surrounded by a constantly changing mural by digital art pioneer Daniel Brown.Bespoke texts and emails will be sent out to shoppers as new products arrive, based on their shopping habits and taste. More traditionally, an in-house tailor will create on-site customisations and alterations for shoppers.The main area of the Galleries was designed by Jamie Fobert, who used coach outlet
ten types of marble on the floor to create a room he describes as “minimal, but feminine and graceful, yet strong.”Eight boutiques are dedicated to heavyweight designers Chanel, Prada, Lanvin, Celine, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Dries Van Noten, while Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens, Maison Martin coach outlet
